The restaurant is a really a cool old beach house with lots of charm. Dinner was good but not necessarily great for the price. Scallops were big and sweet but were overwhelmed by the garlic in the cream sauce. Veggies were OK as was the red potato. Brussel sprouts were sort of weird with carrots but, reminded me of being a kid!! The waitress was just OK, repeating over and over "just take your time". Best of all was the desert! A hugh piece of chocolate peanut butter pie!! It was WONDERFUL.

We were dining this evening, when we heard shouting. We had a clear view of the kitchen and of course we looked to see what the commotion was about. A man, who appeared to be the chef, came out to the dining area and spoke with a table, seeming to be quite upset. He then approached one of the servers, and punched him in the back!!! We couldn't believe it!! He just hauled off and wailed this poor man for no reason! I'll never be dining there again!!

Went for the first time last evening and was very impressed. Very comfortable, cozy atmosphere. The staff was very attentive and the chef is excellent. The food from the appetizer through the dessert was delicious. A real gem! I will definately be going back.

We really wanted to try this place for breakfast so we did! The atmosphere was great. It's in an old house with really cool decor. Service was decent,though our server didn't mention some specials that weren't on the menu. The food was outstanding! I had the stuffed crème brulé French toast and mom had the regular crème brulé French toast with sausage. Delicious!! Will definitely go back again!!

This is in an old house - filled with wonderful pictures, antique furniture and knick knacks. Cozy atmosphere. Delicious food. Excellent service.
